The 2019 NSW / ACT / QLD Interschools Multiclass Championships will be held on Saturday August 24 at Perisher as part of the SSA Northern States Interschools Championships. The event is being run in conjunction with Disabled Wintersport Australia (DWA). The event is an Alpine and Snowboard GS event for students with a disability in NSW, ACT and QLD.
Participants will also have the opportunity to participate in a two day DWA training camp at Perisher leading up to the event on August 22 & 23. The camp and support on the event day is a $98 fee payable to DWA (DWA membership also needed) and involves 2 x 2 hour coaching sessions each day with DWA’s volunteer adaptive snowsport guides. It is a basic introduction to racing to help students understand the racing process and to become more comfortable in a race course.
Students compete for their school in their Interschools division (year at school).
- Division 1 Male & Female - Years 11 & 12
- Division 2 Male & Female - Years 9 & 10
- Division 3 Male & Female - Years 7 & 8
- Division 4 Male & Female - Years 5 & 6
